On the eve of the holiday season, Uncle Lillo and Uncle Greg are suddenly forced to take care of their 8-year-old nephew. His parents have been mistakenly arrested for growing pot. The two uncles are very different from each other, and inadequate for the task.
Greg, a single rocker, will seek the help of Genny (Ambra Angiolini). Lillo, just left by his wife (Paola Minaccioni) and jealous of her new partner, a tattoo artist (Paolo Calabresi), will take advantage of the situation to win her back.
To complicate matters, the surprise visits of two zealous but bizarre social workers (Francesco Montanari and Riccardo De Filippis) to the “strange family”, to verify its suitability.
